This Funzing Experience:
YOU ARE TOTALLY AMAZING! The amount of information you deal with on a daily basis is absolutely staggering... It is no wonder then, that you have developed systems to help you to cope with that bombardment. If the human brain were a computer, it could process 30 thousand trillion pieces of information per second... But you choose to ignore 99.9% of the information you receive because if you didn't you'd go mad!

In this highly interactive talk, Steve will be encouraging the audience to really get in touch with their perceptions and their perceptual models of the world!

Sharing with the audience how a drunken conversation with a police officer led to a 10 year quest to understand how we perceive and filter the world around us. That led to him building the world's only science based Perception Profiling Assessment.

The audience gets to experience first hand how they form their perceptions of the world and gain insights as to how perceptions become biases and how biases can serve to keep you safe or put you in harms way.

You will laugh, you will gasp, you probably won't cry... Above all you will walk away with a much better understanding of how you experience the world just a little bit differently to everyone around you.

Venue: ISH, International Students House

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
